Weekly Reading Tasks      (Complete 1 per day)

 Weekly Writing Tasks                 (Complete 1 per day)

Spend about 15 minutes reading. There are lots of free e-books to read. Use the links on the next page. 

  • Following this, summarise the events from the chapter. You could bullet point what happened or create a comic strip.
  • If you have read a non-fiction text, create a glossary of technical terms. 
  • Write a book review about a book you have read.
  • Write a new and exciting blurb for your book.
  • Design a new front cover for a book.  
  • Choose a poetry book, learn some rhymes so that you can amaze your family.
  • Write a recommendation for a friend. Who would enjoy the book? Someone older, someone younger or someone the same age. Why would they enjoy it? How many stars does it score out of five?   
  • What do you know about acrostic poems? Read the short Powerpoint presentation and find out more. Then prepare to write your own acrostic poem about a US state. Write down words and phrases about one of the states. See the example on the Powerpoint. 
  • Today, read the Powerpoint called ‘Writing a draft poem’. Then have a go yourself using the words collected yesterday.
  • Now read through your draft poem and try to make improvements. Copy out the final version neatly, add a picture and read it out aloud to a member of your family and then wait for their applause. There is a short Powerpoint to use today.
  • Today and tomorrow complete some research about the Iroquois (say Err-uh-kwoy) Native American people. There is an information sheet to download as well as some links on the next page. Organise your findings under headings including: Food, Farming, Hunting, Clothing, Homes, Warfare, Customs, Language and beliefs, Recreation and Arts and crafts. Consider the best way to present the information. The Iroquois people have inhabited the areas of Ontario and upstate New York for well over 4000 years so there is a lot of history to cover! Today they are sometimes referred to as the Haudenosaunee or Six Nations and are made up of a confederacy that include the Mohawk, Seneca, Oneida, Onondaga, Tuscarora and Cayuga tribes.

 Art/D & T

Look at some images of Iroquois longhouses. You can see a picture of one by clicking on the topic learning tab. There are also lots more images on-line. Families from the same Iroquois tribes lived together in longhouses. Complete a sketch of a longhouse. Then,

why not try to make a model of a longhouse. This clip might be helpful: https://www.

 Computing

 Read the Powerpoint about e-mails and then look at the photo on the topic learning page. Why do you think this e-mail is suspicious?  

 

 California facts

 Read the fun fact sheets about California. One of them is a colouring in sheet, which you can complete. Can you create a fact sheet like one of these for another US state?
